According to NighthawkXL it may benifit us, he says it looks good on paper, but implementing the exploit tk a device is a different ball game, i beleive it will help acheive an exploit for the samsung bootloader, but only time will tell

Do take my statement with a grain of salt however. It'll probably be a few days before Surge & Co. make any statements regarding this exploit. The big question though is if this is Dan Rosenberg's TrustZone kernel exploit that he'll be showing off at Blackhat in August or if this something else in the code for LittleKernel.

I have been wondering that since i first saw it, guess we will have to wait and see, has anyone asked him about it, or has he commented at all on the subject?

I doubt it, and even so he'll likely decline to comment. He and XDA have had fallout of sorts...

Something might get an unlock from this but not likely to be a Sammy device. Ryanbg, jeboo and myself all looked into it before finding out from a couple of highly reliable sources that Samsung devices aren't effected, including ralekdev (he also was the one who reported it).

Figured it was too good to be true. Looking forward to Blackhat and the things that might come from it. Thanks Surge and keep up the good work!!!!
